A very deep vivid brown with ruby high lights. The head is tall and dense. It lingers for a good while leaving a web of lacing on the glass.
The smell is roasty and hoppy. I don't smell much to suggest that this is a Beligum style.
The hops have a lemony citrus brightness and malts have a pleasent sutle roastedness.
Strong roasted malts in the taste with hints of chocolate and coffee. The hops are not as promedent as in the nose with only suggestive hints of citrus rinds.
The feel is a full bodied brew with gritt char. Finishes bitter.
I like this beer as a black IPA but I seem to miss the Beligum aspect. I think the richness of the roasted malts dominates the sutlties of the Beligum yeast.

A- Pitch black with a light khaki head of 1.5 fingers that settles into a ring around the edge. Deep red accents and superb lacing make for a very tasty looking treat.
S- Some earthy and fruity hops of lemon zest. Slight lingering musk and dirt. A roasted malt base.
T- A harmonious balance of roasted malts and fruit hops. Tangy, acidic, and raw as it tantalizes the palate. Some coffee, smoke, and pine help it to settle in nicely on the taste buds, but then quickly fades to the fruity, lemon character. Spot on bitterness.
M- Creamy and heavier than most IPAs, but not at the cost of losing some crisp drinkable character. Mid body bordering on full. Alcohol fairly well hidden.
O- First encounter with the Soriachi Ace hop, and I am quite smitten. Straight forward and well done.

On-tap 11/20/2013 at Doherty’s Ale House, in Warwick, RI served in a snifter glass.
A: The beer is a deep black color, with a large foamy beige head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and some hops.
T: The taste starts out with a hearty roasted malt character that is quickly followed by flavors of dark chocolate and coffee. Then a strong hops bitterness comes in creating a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy and slightly sweet.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is dry and slightly sticky.
O: Very tasty, goes down easily, not to filling, good kick, very good combination of styles, this is a very nice beer to pound down for a long time.
